I have renewed my licenses and installed the new license keys. Everything has been running just fine.
However, each time the system is booted, the console receives dozens of warning messages about the old expired licenses that are still in the license database. Is there not a way to remove these now that they are no longer needed?
I thought in the past I had done this with the command:
$ LICENSE DELETE * /STATUS=(EXTINCT)
And in fact, "HELP LICENSE" does include this exact command as an example. When I try it, though, I get the message:
%LICENSE-W-NODELETE, * was not deleted; no matching records found
Evidently the wild card is no longer recognized. Surely it isn't necessary to delete all these licenses one by one. Or is it?
malmberg December 12 2017 HPE only makes the most current version of OpenVMS Alpha / IA64 /VAX available to hobbyists. When I had access to the Alliance 1 program it was the same. No public downloads are allowed by HPE.
